Our Exclusive Review -

Our own Reed Hubbard (Koltrane) has spent many consecutive weeks living inside the virtual world of "EVE Online" - the award winning sci-fi/space MMORPG by CCP Games.  Well, he is back now and ready to share his opinions of the game with our community!  Here is a snippet from his review:

EVE is a space game with a thriving economy, but it could be easily argued that EVE is an intricate economic simulation with a fancy, outer space interface. The economy of EVE is both the most complex and most rewarding feature of EVE. Ore, minerals, goods, items, ships, skills...everything in EVE is for sale and the mantra of, "buy low, sell high" applies. The economy is driven by players in pursuit of Interstellar Kredits, or ISK. (Note: ISK is also the international currency symbol for the Krona, the primary currency of Iceland. CCP, the developer of EVE is based in Reykjavik, Iceland.) NPC corporations manufacture ships, but they need minerals to do so, and those minerals are supplied by players. If no one is mining ore, then no minerals are refined which means no items are being manufactured which means no ships are being assembled. Money can be made providing myriad services in this economy. Mining ore brings a price, as does transporting minerals, etc.
